Pure Chance Connection via WiFi, USB-Cable or Bluetooth. No data will be handled throught external servers, the whole communication is local. This is the client which is needed for phone, you'll need also the desktop-software which can be downloaded at www.fjsoft.at. Computational design tool for graphic designers What we love is developing tools that help others with their work. This article is about the mixture of computation with graphic design and motion design. 436 studio, the creators of visual identity of Biela noc [Nuit Blanche] 2016 approached us with a request to create a computational design tool for them. Brief was simple – text, where characters are made of white dots in several layers, should disassemble over time.
100 Websites You Should Know and Use In the spring of 2007, Julius Wiedemann, editor in charge at Taschen GmbH, gave a legendary TED University talk: an ultra-fast-moving ride through the “100 websites you should know and use.” Six years later, it remains one of the most viewed TED blog posts ever. Time for an update? We think so. Below, the 2013 edition of the 100 websites to put on your radar and in your browser. To see the original list, click here.
Maternal invasion history of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus into the Isthmus of Panama: Implications for the control of emergent viral disease agents Abstract Despite an increase in dengue outbreaks and the arrival of chikungunya and Zika disease in Panama, studies on the demographic history of the invasive Aedes mosquitoes that are the principle vectors of these diseases are still lacking in this region. Here, we assess the genetic diversity of these mosquitoes in order to decipher their invasion histories into the Isthmus of Panama. DNA sequences from the mitochondrial cytochrome C oxidase I gene obtained from 30 localities in 10 provinces confirmed the presence of more than one mitochondrial haplogroup (i.e., maternal lineage) in each species. The invasion of Aedes albopictus was likely from temperate European countries, as the most frequent and widespread haplogroup in Panama harbored variants that are uncommon elsewhere in the Americas.
PearlTrees: A Tool for Organizing Online Resources I love learning new tech tools, and while I'd heard of PearlTrees before, I had never taken the time to work with it. It's a pretty slick tool! Basically, PearlTrees is a social bookmarking tool, but the design of it makes it particularly conducive to creating a curated collection of resources about a given topic. This makes it ideal for educational settings in which you might want to provide students with a curated list of links, infographics, videos and the like to build background for a particular subject.
ngmaps.maps.arcgis Historic photographs and captions by Phil Pennington (1961-64) Produced by National Geographic Maps * In 1963, the diversion tunnels of Glen Canyon Dam closed causing the waters of the Colorado River to back up 186 miles through Glen Canyon to form Lake Powell. Built for political purposes, the dam was originally meant to provide a sustainable water supply to the arid Southwest, but has since undermined that very objective and has caused massive collateral damage across the Colorado River Basin. Before the dam, Glen Canyon was a wonderland of gorges, spires, cliffs, and grottoes; the biological heart of the Colorado River, with more than 79 species of plants, 189 species of birds, and 34 species of mammals; and a cultural treasure, with more than 3,000 ancient ruins.

Top 5 Social Media Myths Social media holds great advantages, whether for improving internal collaboration, communication and social learning, or for building and enhancing trust through more responsive communications with key stakeholders and clients. Unfortunately, some organisations still hold onto a number of fears that hold them back from utilising these tools: 1. Employees will waste time Fear: Employees will waste time regardless of whether social computing tools are available to them or not.Fact: Research from MIT notes that 40% of employees productivity is directly explained by the amoung of communication they have with others to discover, gather and internalise information. Employees with the most extensive digital networks are 7% more productive than their colleagues.

Nick's Picks for Educational Technology: Pearltrees - Organize and Share Digital Resources Posted March 13, 2015 by Nick LaFave under Sharing Content Pearltreeswww.pearltrees.net Pearltrees has always been much more than a social book marking tool — it allows users to collaboratively gather websites, photos, and notes and organize them into visually appealing collections (similar to folders). It’s a great way for teachers and students to share resources.
Create Something. Donate Login Remember Me Create An Account Freedom of Speech Freedom of speech—the right to express opinions without government restraint—is a democratic ideal that dates back to ancient Greece. In the United States, the First Amendment guarantees free speech, though the United States, like all modern democracies, places limits on this freedom. In a series of landmark cases, the U.S. Supreme Court over the years has helped to define what types of speech are—and aren’t—protected under U.S. law. The ancient Greeks pioneered free speech as a democratic principle.
